Publisher's Summary

It's 1871 in the contented Mormon town of Cottonwoods, Utah, and Elder Tull wants to marry wealthy rancher Jane Withersteen so desperately that he's willing to use the water supply - the precious lifeblood of the land - to force her hand. But that was before a mysterious, lone gunman called Lassiter showed up...


Audible Editor Reviews

Zane Grey's first (1912) and most popular bestseller defined the mythical Wild West for subsequent generations. Donald Buka's twang and clear voice accent the tale well. Gunman Lassiter helps a wealthy Mormon rancher protect her ranch from cattle rustlers and the church. Although his narration is somewhat dry, Buka delivers at the dramatic points and allows listeners to savor the the excitement and intrigue of the Western frontier.

The Father of the Genre

If Zane Grey's books sound like cliche cowboy stories, it's because he invented the genre. His writing conveys an authentic voice of the times about which he wrote. If you don't Westerns, you probably won't like it. If you like that period in history, this is as good as it gets. This particular recording is lower quality. However, the narrator is a delightful story teller. I recommend the book and this particular production.
